BAR BOTANIQUE, designed by STUDIO MODIJEFSKY, brings a fresh and green interior to the former local Dutch café, De Ponteneur. It is the place to be from early morning to late in the evening, bringing the idea of a green interior to another level – palm trees, Philodendrons, ferns and Monsteras are hanging from ceilings and walls, reflected by mirrors and highlighted by lamps, combining Scandinavian sofas with small brasserie tables.
Historically a gym and later a local café, new elements in the interior are introduced such as hanging elements, geometric rings holdings plants from the ceiling, custom glass racks with light tubes and furniture details.
“The mirrors reflect light and the plants in the space, creating a forest-like feeling where rays of light spill through trees and plants,” explained Zahra Rajaei, an interior architect at the firm. “During the day, light spills into the space and creates natural shadows of the plants, while at night, lights shine onto the plants, creating dramatic shadows on the ceiling and walls.“
